So I purchased a Denon x1000 to try out. Results from listening and pink noise.....same thing.
SPL meter confirmed on pink noise at least.
Denon 1712 - Denon X1000
4kHz: 54dB - 54dB
10kHz: 38dB - 39dB
So that means that these speakers in my room are almost 20dB down at 10kHz from 2kHz. Does that seem normal to anyone? lol. I know it's tappered off that much because MultEQ XT bumps the top end up to +6.0dB's in places. Above 4-5kHz it's boosting by 4.5+ dB's. Again, this same trend can be seen when the SPL meter is placed at tweeter height roughly 8" from the speaker so it's not a room issue.
Playing test tones using my WDTV-Live connected to my PC. Using pink noise tracks from the Alan Parsons Soundcheck disc (something like tracks 10-38 I believe). I'm not sure what else to try. I have both AVR's here and my SPL meter. Access to plenty of other discs, pink noise, sine waves, etc.
I understand that the speakers might have a slightly rolled off top end, which is somewhat known, but to be almost 20dB down from 2kHz to 10kHz when doing NEAR FIELD measurements? I can understand a boost due to room size or the speakers actually needing it a little to be "FLAT" according to Audyssey, but I don't think it can boost more than 6dB's (...a good thing) and if it could then I bet it would if it's measuring what I'm measuring (aka....needing 15+ dB's up top). I'm about to just say F it and enjoy it with Audyssey engaged on my 1712. Not send it in or anything. I have no clue what's going on. lol.
